[pve-devel] [PATCH qemu-server 07/11] cfg2cmd: allow PBS snapshots as backing files for drives

Stefan Reiter s.reiter at proxmox.com
Mon Jan 11 12:14:05 CET 2021


Uses the custom 'alloc-track' filter node to redirect writes to the
original drives target, while unwritten blocks will be read from the
specified PBS snapshot.
